fandom stuff, or, what I did on my weekend (includes Recs)

esorlehcar's pictures of Dom with his shirt over his head and his chest bare just crack me up. That is such a dorky thing to do. This series cheers me up every time I look at it.

Two new Billy pictures (with students at the Royal Scottish Academy of Drama) found by friendsfriending.

Happy birthday canciona and tvillingar!


Recs: For some reason, all these include one of my favorite things: some kind of twisting or upsetting of stereotypes, without screwing up the story. Yay for adventurous writers!


Queen's Gambit Part 1 and Part 2 (complete). (By tarteaucitron and algernonthemous; set during filming and after; Dom/Billy, NC-17). The summary is great: old-school fic - kilts, cigarettes, nightclubs, lollies, a decent pinch of good old fashioned NC-17. Oh, and some largely extended metaphors.. Also has lovely twists and unexpected overturning of stereotypes, sharp dialog, delayed gratification, Billy-in-a-kilt, and good hot smut.

Getting Into Trouble (By glass_moment; set mainly during filming; Dom/Billy, PG). Impulsive Billy and thoughtful Dom, nice change from the standard view, great images.

If the Pretty Fits, part 1, 2, 3, 4 (complete). (by llaras, set during filming, Dom/Orlando, NC-17). Sweet, hot, lovely boysex, with a taste of pink panties. Nice dialog, characters, generally a nice story.

Corrupt-verse (WIP), Corrupt part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5: Broken; Oceans Apart (by trollsttroll; set 2004ish; Dom/Billy/Ali; NC-17). I like this threesome, but I've never read it like this before: a very dominant Ali and submissive Billy adjust their relationship to incorporate a subby Dom. It's not the most polished prose and some of it doesn't fit my kinks, but many of the elements are quite effective and it has a powerful dynamic.

Material World (WIP) chapter listing (By telesilla and darkrosetiger; AU set in LA, Orlando/various, NC-17, BDSM). Playing with the "Orlando as a whore" cliché, twists and turns that I never saw coming. So far, Jason Isaacs, Clive Owen, Ioan Gryffud, Liam Neeson and Viggo. Characterization is as good as the smut!

Thank you! Also, thank you for your recs: I'll be going through them and searching some old favourites among them.

It took me a while to realize that it was a useful list. I keep meaning to make it into a full web page. Someday.
